Dianne Feinstein is at it again...
Via the Sacramento Bee:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Wednesday introduced legislation to close what she calls an automatic weapons loophole that allows gun owners to convert semi-automatic rifles into rapid-fire automatic machines.
"Individuals are able to purchase bump fire stocks and easily convert a semi-automatic weapon into a firearm that can shoot between 400 and 800 rounds per minute and inflict absolute carnage,” Feinstein said in a statement.
“I’m looking at how to best proceed with legislation to finally close this loophole … it should be our highest priority.”
Craig DeLuz, a spokesman for the Sacramento-based Firearms Policy Association, a gun rights group, declined to weigh in on the legality of the device, but characterized any legislation proposed in the wake of a shooting as “opportunistic” and suggested Feinstein is politically motivated.
“Maybe before we start coming up with a solution, we ought to give investigators time to get all the information needed to determine if there is a problem,” DeLuz said in an interview.
“The senator wants to ban all semi-automatic rifles. We’re opposed to banning the most-commonly owned firearms in the entire country.”
